Summary
"This storybook challenges stereotypes. It is about a giant named Benjamin-Bob who, due to his size, has been given the job of "town protector", watching over the hills and scaring away bears and other potential predators. The job doesn't suit him, as he does not like to scare, and so he tries to leave this role to pursue a job in building and repairing homes. When he gets an opportunity to do the latter, people learn how skilled he is and how wrong they were to stereotype him and place limitations on him based on the stereotype."-- Provided by publisher
